Alex Glow’s Freeform Soldered Earring #WearableWednesday #ValentinesDay
Snazzy wearable (that also seems like a really fun and quick-to-make gift) by Alex Glow on Hackster.io:
I’m excited that freeform soldered art is having a moment; it’s a beautiful aesthetic. However, not many people seem to realize the potential for wearable freeform circuits! Let’s change that. (If you’d like to build a glowing necklace, check out my Luminary pendant from 2011 🙂 )
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
